US Commission No. SLCE000121: Filakovo is located E of Lucenec. The flat urban isolated location has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a broken masonry wall and no gate. There are 100-500 marble, granite, limestone, and sandstone and other materials 19th-20th century gravestones in original locations. The flat shaped tombstones and finely smoothed Hebrew, German, and Hungarian inscribed stones. The cemetery is divided into a separate section for women who died during childbirth. Site is now used for Jewish cemetery and agriculture. Adjacent properties are residential. Occasionally, private visitors stop. There is occasional clearing by individuals. No threats except slight weather erosion.

I visited Filakovo cemetery two years ago. The fence was fine and not broken with a locked gate so I couldn't get in. A stone with an inscription said that the place was renovated by a generous donor but I didn't take picture so I can't remember his name. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
